Summary of final project of ARCH101

Firstly, we were expected to go and talk with an artizan for observation process of a product. My choice was tailor. With the help of the informations which I gather from the Tailor Kadir, I created a flowchart. That flowchart was a dynamo til some actions. Then, with the help of the flowchart, we were able to create our first model, the “linear model”(former name, structural frame). My linear model consisted of basic actions such as = Rotation, Adding, Branching.structural frameLinear Model

After that, we were asked to do a “planar model”(Variation I). I produced a planar model only with the planar elements. So it means, planes consisted of lines. And we could improve our flowchart and I was expected to test and consciously operate by taking the new potantiels of my operations. Did I take into consideration these new potantiels ? Not much in Variation One.

After the planar model, we were asked to create the “merged model” (Variation II). Adding, rotating and branching were still valid, but a new operation now entered the building, streching. We could also eliminate certain elements that were present in either model.merged modelMerged model

Then we were wanted to create Variation III, by using transparent acetate also. With the new variation, we have extrusion, change transparency, duplicate etc. I have a theme “poriforus centralisation”. And with the theme, we were asked to create volumes, define volumes with the theme and the actions.

Experiencing Architecture

First of all, I could have read this text before my architecture study. There is no special requirement for read. This book should have been recommending for those who thinks study architecture.

The architect works with mass with form and mass as the sculptor does

But in my opinion, it was new and a sort of philosophical way to look at architecture. But if we consider the book written in 1959, it might have worthy. Buildings were no longer monuments that mark a person existence in Earth. All buildings had life and function and we can experience them through our senses (it is not ARCH121, it is ARCH201). While I ve been reading this, I was focused on the functional and engineering part of architecture that I totally forgot the more philosophical and social duty attached to a building like a house a hospital or a museum. All of these buildings have different colours, textures, sounds, light. But still my opinion stays steel. Still, I’m thinking the same as before because more than the philosophical way of thinking architecture, it was in past. But the book is in 1959, so it was in past too. I don’t know what to write sorry.
